  1. Dear’s third album proves a wealth of open-window micro pop fit for summer gusts and unexpected flints of lightning.
  2. Throughout much of Asa Breed, Dear achieves a serendipitous balance between the uplifting and the eerie, the hummable and the hypnotic, the tuneful and the texturally adventurous.
  3. It’s a bold, ambitious statement from a techno producer keen to expand his range watch this space.
  4. A pop album that comes giddy with detailed digital patterns,

    Dear infuses the snapping, beeping compositions of his second album with a sincere yearn, broadening the genre in the process. [Jul 2007, p.96]
  6. Much of Asa Breed sounds like TV On The Radio with more exacting production and a more pensive disposition.
  7. The minimal or micro house found on Asa Breed seems narrowly focused to appeal to a very specialized audience. [Summer 2007, p.87]

    "Deserter" is the best song of 2007. And the rest of the album's good too.
